Gimme Some Truth

I’m sick and tired of hearing things
From uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocrites
All I want is some truth now
Just gimme some truth now

I’ve had enough of reading things
By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians
All I want is some truth now
Just gimme some truth now

No short-haired, yellow bellied, son of tricky dicky
Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of hope
Money for dope
Money for dope

No short-haired, yellow bellied, son of tricky dicky
Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of hope
Money for dope
Money for dope

I’m sick to death of seeing things
From tight-lipped, condescending, mamma’s little chauvinists
All I want is some truth now
Just gimme some truth now

No short-haired, yellow bellied, son of tricky dicky
Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of hope
Money for dope
Money for dope

I’m sick and tired of hearing things
From uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocrites
All I want is some truth now
Just gimme some truth now

All I want is some truth now
Just gimme some truth now

Song Notes

The track is titled as “Give Me Some Truth” on the “Angel Interceptor” artwork despite the original version by John Lennon being titled “Gimme Some Truth”.

Rick: We did a cover of “Gimme Some Truth” by John Lennon, the electro-pop version. It’s - phew - I don’t know… It’s a chance to experiment. I wouldn’t say it was throwaway, just very spontaneous. Most of our B-sides have been very strange. I’m not really sure where they’re going.
